PATNA: The arrangements are on full swing to hang the rapists and murderers of the Nirbhaya case held in Delhi in 2012, as the execution ordered by a court today for January 22 at 7 am. The four convicts-Akshay Thakur Singh, Mukesh, Pawan Gupta and Vinay Sharma were found guilty in the 2012 gang-rape, torture and killing of the young medical student in Delhi. They will be hanged in Delhi’s Tihar Jail.
Special ropes for the execution have been brought from a jail in Bihar’s Buxar, which also sent ropes for the hanging of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru in 2013, sources have said. A dummy execution has also been carried out to test the gallows at Tihar, Asia’s largest prison.
According to sources, the service of a hangman from Meerut has been sought. Proper arrangements are being made at the jail to execute all the four convicts together.
The convicts have been kept in different cells and monitored through CCTV. Arrangements for the hanging are being made in Jail Number 3, where executions take place.
